    Aces (or anyone),

    Do you know where I can find the detailed info on the Spectra GM42AFI Tank and Pump? I went to Rock Auto and found the listing, but I couldn't find any specs, etc. This looks like it makes more sense than going through the hassle of modifying the stock tank and cost of a new pump, etc.

    Thanks in advance,

    Would this swap (LT1 into '79) be too difficult for someone who has never done a motor swap before? I worked on cars and know my way around cars pretty well. I am pretty confident I could figure out how to do this swap from common sense and reading threads but the wiring and fueling scare me a little.

    Thanks that's what I was hoping to hear. Another question; not including the price of the shell and motor/trans/ecu, how much should I budget for parts needed to put the motor in?
